Corruption Watch files Eskom board delinquency papers

Civil society organisation Corruption Watch said it has launched an application in the high court in Pretoria to have former Eskom board members declared delinquent.

The application “focuses on the violation of fiduciary duties and gross negligence on the part of former board members”, the Johannesburg-based Corruption Watch said in an e-mailed statement on Monday.

The papers name Mark Pamensky, Anoj Singh, Brian Molefe, Venete Klein, Zethembe Wilfred Khoza and former minister of public enterprises Lynne Brown.

Eskom is R419-billion in debt, is loss making, has more staff than it needs and its ageing plants can’t always produce enough power to meet declining demand.  — Reported by Renee Bonorchis, (c) 2019 Bloomberg LP
